The owner of these pink and green brocade shoes (c. 1760, with later alterations) was most likely Elizabeth Wentworth Warner (July 30, 1739-August 1793/November 1794, posted in two New Hampshire papers, the Oracle and the Gazette).
Despite somewhat careless alterations at some point in their history, they have a contemporary appeal with a cheery palette. One can easily imagine wearing them today. Elizabeth was the daughter of Hunking Wentworth, she married Captain Samuel Warner (August 21, 1737- September 10, 1771; Jonathan Warner's brother) on October 8, 1761. She was twenty two and Captain Warner was twenty four; he died a decade later when she was thirty two. The mother of Elizabeth Warner Sherburne, Elizabeth Wentworth Warner died at 54/55 years of age.
